Carter is Counsel at CloudFlare in San Francisco, CA. CloudFlare protects and accelerates websites by automatically optimizing the delivery of web pages so visitors get the best performance possible.  He was previously Policy Counsel for Advanced Networks and Access Services at Google in Mountain View, CA.  At Google, he was responsible for developing the company’s global telecommunications policy strategy.  Mr. Carter also served as policy counsel for two of Google's most important products: Android and Fiber.

Before joining Google, he was a Senior Consultant in the NGN and Internet Economics Department at WIK Consult GmbH, in Bad Honnef, Germany.  WIK-Consult GmbH is the for-profit consulting arm of the Wissenschaftliches Institut für Infrastruktur und Kommunikationsdienste (Scientific Institute for Infrastructure and Communication Services), Germany's leading research and advisory institute for communication services.  The NGN and Internet Economics Department takes an interdisciplinary approach, to provide critical analysis and insight to assist regulators and market players in tackling complex strategic and tactical questions regarding NGNs.  At WIK, he advised both private- and public-sector clients on matters relating to Next Generation Networks, particularly emerging issues or issues of first impression which cross traditionally-defined industries and classifications.  Mr. Carter also  proposed a new mechanism for spectrum trading and assignment which can be as much as 80% more efficient than conventional auctions.

Prior to joining wik-Consult in April 2007, Mr. Carter was Senior Counsel for Business and Economics in the Office of Strategic Planning and Policy Analysis (OSP) at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).   The Office, frequently referred to as the FCC’s "think tank", works to develop a strategic plan identifying short- and long-term policy objectives for the Commission. OSP is responsible for monitoring the state of the communications industry to identify trends, emerging issues, and overall industry health. Mr. Carter's role was that of  an internal consultant to the Commission, focusing on three major areas: industry intelligence, agency planning, and spectrum policy. At the FCC, he provided the Chairman, Commissioners, and other senior staff with financial, business, and market analysis regarding emerging trends to assist the Commission in understanding the future implications of current issues.  Mr. Carter co-authored OSP Working Paper #39, "Unlicensed and Unshackled", widely-cited as an authority on the use of license-exempt spectrum.  In addition, Mr. Carter, was selected to receive the FCC Excellence in Economic Analysis Award.  Through this prestigious award, Chairman Kevin Martin recognized the cutting edge experimental economic analysis completed by Mr. Carter and two of his FCC colleagues, Dr. Mark Bykowsky and Dr. William Sharkey.  The series economic experiments breaks ground for market-informed radio spectrum policies.  At the FCC, he also served on several working groups, including the IT Steering Committee, and was the Legal Co-Chair of Research and Development Subcommittee of the Spectrum Policy Task Force.

Mr. Carter joined the FCC from the Columbia Institute for Tele-Information(CITI) at Columbia University, where he was Deputy Director.  As the leading academic research institute focusing on telecommunications economics and policy, the Institute is closely monitored as a barometer for emerging trends within the industry. Mr. Carter served as the Institute's liaison to corporations, policy-makers, and the press in the U.S., Europe, and Asia, providing analysis on topical issues. At CITI, he managed CITI’s various research projects, including the development of the first web-based graduate-level distance education course for business students.  He was a Director of the Virtual Institute of Information, CITI’s on-line research platform, and was also responsible for the coordination of the MBA concentration in the Management of Entertainment, Communications, and Media at Columbia Business School. He was appointed Associate Director of CITI in June 1998 after having been a legal research assistant as a law student.  Mr. Carter was instrumental in establishing an industry research center at the Institute, with a $1.2 million grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.  He remains a Senior Research Fellow at the Institute.

Mr. Carter has worked for the Federal Trade Commission on such issues as the FTC's jurisdiction over resellers of prepaid telecommunication services and the deceptive advertising of tariff rates. He began his career in media and communications, having worked for MTV Networks, Island Records, and the international television syndication firm, D.L. Taffner.

Mr. Carter has served on several advisory boards and committees.  He served on International Advisory Forum on Next Generation Broadband Networks.  Minister Eamon Ryan of the Department of Communications, Energy and Natural Resources established this Advisory Forum of senior telecoms experts and CEOs from around the world in order to advise him on the optimum role for Government in the development of Next Generation Broadband in the Republic of Ireland.  From 2004 to 2007, Mr. Carter served on the Program Committee of the annual Telecommunications Policy Research Conference (TPRC), acting as Vice Chairman for the Thirty Fourth and Thirty Fifth Annual Conferences.

Mr. Carter earned an Executive MBA from Columbia Business School (Dean's List) while working full-time as the Deputy Director of CITI.  Mr. Carter received his JD from the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law. While in law school, he was a member of the Cardozo Arts Entertainment Law Journal and President of the Cardozo Asian and Pacific Law Students Association.  Mr. Carter was awarded an Alexander Judicial Fellowship, serving as a full-time junior clerk in the chambers of Hon.
